    steering wheel controls

    Hey guys, I know that this topic has been talked about a bit already. but i'm confused as to what to do with my controls. Just installed my alpine 9855 last week, and its amazing, don't care what anyone says about the glide touch, its good. anyways... I picked up the stalk controlls KCE-870B 2nd hand from ebay and had a shop install it for me. it works but its all messed up, the

    Volume (-) thinks its Volume (+)
    Volume (+) does nothing
    Track (+) switches bands
    Track (-) thinks its Tack (+)
    The (arrow) switches bands
    The (0) also switches bands

    Don't know if anyone will understand what i'm talking about here, but is there a chance that the wiring is all messed up? haven't seen how he's installed it. Also the lights don't work anymore. Can anyone help me? Do you think that adaptor is faulty?
    Thanks

    I would say the adaptors either faulty or the wrong one i'm afraid, not what you want to hear I know. There are only two wires that do the steering wheel controls I believe so wiring it up wrong wouldn't give the problems your explaining

    dang! so guess my best option now is to get a new one. What would you recomend? heard many different options from other sources but which is reliable? and does international shipping... hehe.. the other difficulty I have when purchasing something since I live out here in the Philippines.

    Ah didn't see your location

    I'd say wait and hopefully one of the guys with a alpine headunit and steering wheel controls reads this and gives you their answer. Everything i've heard so far seems to be hit or miss
